This topic describes how to disable a multi-factor authentication (MFA) device for a RAM user of your Alibaba Cloud account.


  1. Log on to the RAM console by using an Alibaba Cloud account.
    Note If you allow a RAM user to manage its own MFA device, the RAM user can disable the MFA device in the RAM console. The procedure is as follows: Log on to the console as a RAM user, move the pointer over the profile picture in the upper-right corner of the console, and then click Security. In the left-side navigation pane, click MFA Device Management. On the page that appears, click Disable MFA Device.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Users under Identities.
  3. On the Users page, click the name of the target RAM user in the User Logon Name/Display Name column.
  4. On the Authentication tab, click Disable the Virtual MFA Device.
  5. Click OK.
